Stnndnrd Oil is about to go against something stronger than tho state of Missouri. Tho United States government has got around to tho point at last whore it has a caso against tho paront of all trusts, and, loss all the ndvnnce reports aro greatly cxaggorntod, magnate who havo heretofore defied tho authorities and the people will soon bo in. tho hardest corner thnt has ever fallen to their lot. Congress and tho country will know all about it when Commissioner of Cor porations Garfield's much-heralded re port on his investigation of tho oil combination is sent to tho senato and house on Friday. It will bo submitted by the President, who has received it from tho commissioner, nnd it will be accompanied by an executive) message. Greatest Conspiracy on Earth. The message in all probability will havo for its objective tho clinching of the effective rnllroad-rate regulation which the administration is determined to secure, as tho report Itself will show how favoritism in rates nnd rebates has built up the most stupendous polit-co-finnncifil industrial institution in tho world a power that not only con trols the output nnd the price of the commodity that gives its name, but which, through a handful of men, domi nates practically every branch of trade and commerce in tho country, nnd hold the transportation systems themselves within its grasp. Imprisonment for Somebody. Ofllcials of tho Standnrd Oil Com pany, moreover, have something more in store to worry about than an ex posure of tho rebates on which their corporation has fattened at tho expense of the vast multitude of shippers, who have had to pay the freight on which tho railroads in turn pay dividends. Criminal prosecution for conspiracy un der the provisions of tho Sherman anti trust law stares them in the face. Rebating, when tho offenders arc caught at it nnd brought to justice, means fines. Conspiracy, when appre hended, means imprisonment for some body, if duty is performed fully. It U asserted on the best of authority that Mr. Garfield, in the language thnt is best understood, 'bas the goods" on the Standard Oil Company, tne Mine as he hnd them on the beef trust, with the essential difference that immunity baths havo not been administered in j tho present instance. o Charges Dismissed.
